    Well... title says it all so I need some suggestions.
    I am pretty good at Seo, had a UFC blog setup for last night's fight which got 1200 highly targeted visitors that came from google by keywords like "watch ufc online", "ufc live stream" and similar. All targeted, organic traffic


    I put up a gateway locking the site... and made 8 lousy bucks!

    Any ideas on how to get more juice from this sort of traffic?

    Which gateway did you put up? ************** and surveys convert like shit. Email submits are the way to go, iframed = even better.

    Home Page:
    can't go wrong with a little adsense.

    throw some affiliate products in there too.

    Used adscendmedia

    Adsense would gtive one cent clicks, not really what I am looking for. I saw the thread about framing some email submit and that might work, but as I said I don't know much of this and wouldn't really know how to cover mi tracks

    Affiliate products? People are looking to watch the fight, not buy stuff, if they wanted to spend money they would just go to yahoo and buy the ppv event

    Guess I'll have to start a JV thread, I put the traffic, someone else monetizes it. Every one of the last UFC fights I've had over 1000 visits and never managed to earn much from them.

    Your problem is traffic not monetization method. I've been doing live streaming for a long time and I would be very happy with $8 per 1800 visitors - I would rarely make a CPM better than $3 - although I only ever used adsense without a gateway as you can get 100x more traffic that way. Concentrate on getting traffic first, then worry about making money out of it. If you had 100k uniques you wouldnt be worried about that :D
